Curious detail: in the first episode, the friend who has become the vampire tells him that his new friends are "The Inquisition" and lists the victims of that organization — but does not mention Jews.
Add that the captured vampires are reduced to ash, and that they say that the ash is alive, and has to be kept imprisoned, and when you see all those vials you get vibes of a huge concentration camp...
- Gnatlet: "..the vampire tells him that his new friends are "The Inquisition" and lists the victims of that organization — but does not mention Jews."
- That would probably be because the Inquisition (by which I mean the Spanish Inquisition... there were inquisitors in Medieval times but not a capital-I Inquisition as such) had absolutely no mandate on anyone non-Christian. They could not, by their very definition, prosecute (or persecute) Jews, Muslims, or anyone non-Christian. However, given how much pressure to convert non-Christians in Renaissance Spain were under, if you *did* convert and then "lapsed" back, you were fair game.
